Hemed, who scored the winning goal, allegedly stamped on Newcastle defender DeAndre Yedlin in the 88th minute and while the incident was not spotted by match officials, it was caught on video.

Off-the-ball incidents that are not seen by match officials are eligible for retrospective action by the FA and English football’s governing body charged the Israeli international on Tuesday.

“Hemed appealed the charge, but an FA panel rejected the appeal,” Brighton said on their website.

Hemed will miss Brighton’s upcoming league games against Arsenal, Everton and West Ham United.
